Damian was in attendance at London Symphony Orchestra’s Music of Exile: Genesis Suite & Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra on Saturday, January 13 at Barbican Centre’s Concert Hall in London, where Helen was one of the narrators. Rarely performed since its 1945 debut, the Genesis Suite was revived by the London Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, accompanied with visual projections conceived by creative director Gerard McBurney.

“It’s a fascinating work because it’s a very political gesture – it’s a Holocaust protest,” says McBurney. “The story focuses on Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel and the Tower of Babel, all of which are a series of broken promises. So, for me, this is a story about the lies that our leaders tell us.”

The piece is a composite suite by seven leading composers of the time, including rivals Arnold Schoenberg and Stravinsky, to bring together the “high art” composers in the US fleeing persecution with the popular culture of Hollywood scores.

Both Helen and Damian are seen pictured here with Maxine Kwok-Adams, violinist of the London Symphony.

Damian Lewis and Malin Akerman hung around the DJ table at the Showtime Golden Globes Party at the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, CA Saturday night. We know Damian loves to dance, sing, play piano and anything musically related, and if this photo is any indication, we just may see a DJ Damian in our future. Well, we can speculate.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime CEO David Nevins exclaimed, “Party your asses off!”  The cast of Billions did not need to be told twice. Asia Kate Dillon, wearing a Billions T-shirt, danced by the bar.  Damian and Malin Akerman carved out a little dance floor to get down to Cheryl Lynn’s “Got to Be Real.”

Showtime CEO David Nevins and Gary Levine, president of programming, were popular throughout the night, and rightfully so, as they celebrated their Golden Globe nominees including William H. MacyKyle MacLachlanFrankie Shaw, and Liev Schreiber. Nevins gave a birthday toast to Julie Chen, who was on hand with husband CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves, who were making the rounds before heading out to a birthday dinner. Also on the scene were the cast of “Billions,” including stars Damian LewisPaul Giamatti and Malin Akerman, as well as Stephen ColbertLena WaithePaula Malcomson, and Jason Mitchell.
